Summary of Chapter 143, Article 60
Of the General Statutes of North Carolina
Chapter 143, Article 60, in Section 143-553(a) of the General Statutes of North Carolina,
provides that if you are employed by a State Agency and you owe money to the State, you must
make full restitution of the amount you owe as a condition of your continued employment. East
Carolina University is a state institution of higher education and a state agency. That means that
if you owe money to the University and you fail to pay the money you owe, the University may
take action to terminate your employment.
However, you may not be terminated if there is a genuine dispute about whether you owe money
to the State or how much money you owe to the State. Also, you may not be terminated if there
is an unresolved issue concerning insurance coverage, or if you are pursuing administrative or
judicial remedies to have the dispute or the issue resolved. Although you will not be terminated
as long as you continue to make repayments to the State in good faith on a schedule agreed to
by the University, the University may terminate you if you stop making payments.
Section 143-554 provides you with the opportunity to appeal your termination to the State
Personnel Commission according to the normal appeal and hearing procedures provided by
Chapter 126 and the State Personnel Commission. You may wish to consult with the Employee
Relations Officer at 328-0017 to fully understand your appeal rights and the deadlines that may
apply for filing an appeal.
